Good to hear. :) Is it the 4.15 kernel you have now?

Re: Mint 18.1 Unable to connect Wirelessly

You can always return to your current kernel in Grub, Advanced Options if there are any issues with a new kernel.

Re: Mint 18.1 Unable to connect Wirelessly

Have you tried the 4.15 kernel? That might get wifi going.

I have two different sets of commands for that, so if one doesn't work, maybe the other will: sudo apt install build-essential -y mkdir -p ~/build cd ~/build sudo apt install git git clone https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU.git cd rtl8821CU make sudo make install Reboot sudo apt update sudo apt i...

Re: Kernel 5.4.0-56 Wi-Fi Connection Problem

Maybe you lost the wifi driver with a kernel update? If so, you can just reinstall it.

You forgot to write apt. Do not write you'd better copy and paste one line each time and tab Enter.
Ah, good catch, I missed that.

Re: Update Manager is dead

The best solution, by far, is to restore a Timeshift snapshot. Assuming you set it up, of course, as prompted at installation. No guess work, no wondering whether you found/remembered everything. All system files will be as they were. That would have been a good idea, but: I have no timeshift.

Re: Very new newbie here

You might just need a better driver. Try this, one line at a time:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install build-essential git dkms
git clone https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU.git
cd rtl8821CU
chmod +x dkms-install.sh
sudo ./dkms-install.sh
sudo modprobe 8821cu
